Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant Program
VTAG is a non need-based grant for Virginia residents attending a participating Virginia private college or university. Funds for this grant have been appropriated by the state legislature since 1973. While the maximum award is authorized each biennium, the amount is not guaranteed and can vary annually. The exact amount of each academic year’s award is determined by the available funding and the total number of eligible applicants. If funding is insufficient to fully award all students, it is possible that the spring award will be adjusted and some students will
receive no award. The college financial aid office will have the most current information about the expected maximum award.
Applications may be acquired from the financial aid office of the private institution the student plans to attend. Completed applications must be submitted to the financial aid office of the institution on, or before, July 31 prior to the fall semester of enrollment. Applications submitted after July 31, but no later than December 1, will be considered for an award only if funds are available.
